To the 100 million gamers living in the United States today, the more super-realistic and obsessively addictive a videogame is, the better. But there is a game about to hit the shelves that is so harrowingly real, so capable of taking over your life, its effects are more than thrilling - they're deadly. The new horror survival game, "Stay Alive," inspired by the true-life story of the shocking 17th century serial killer known as ''The Blood Countess," is still in beta testing. But it's already got a sizzling reputation for supernatural chills and death-defying challenges that push the player to the edge. There's just one little problem - the group of New Orleans gamers who recently got their hands on an underground copy of "Stay Alive" keep winding up dead ... one by one ... each killed in the same way that their characters died in the game.
So are they playing the game ... or is the game playing them?
Get ready for a riveting motion picture experience that blurs the lines between games, legends and reality ... and takes off into the realm of totally original, mind-bending horror. Young gamers Hutch (Jon Foster), Abigail (Samaire Armstrong), Swink (Frankie Muniz), October (Sophia Bush) and Phineus (Jimmi Simpson) are about to play for the highest of stakes as they move back and forth between a next-generation digital fantasy world and the very real dangers of the physical world- all while desperately trying to STAY ALIVE.
Straight from the minds of two young gamer filmmakers - writer-director William Brent Bell and writer-producer Matthew Peterman - STAY ALIVE is a Hollywood Pictures, Spyglass Entertainment, and Endgame production.
